We added a few stretch goals for the final few days.
REACHED! If we hit $13,000, we will give everyone a MINI DIGITAL PDF SAMPLING OF THE COOKBOOK. It will offer a taste of the full cookbook and can be shared with friends and family.
If we hit $15,000, we will give everyone who has pledged to the $40 [THE BOOK!] tier and up, ANOTHER COPY OF THE COOKBOOK and a handy dandy WINE TOTE.
Bring the passion into your own kitchen.
To be Mauro Golmarvi's guest at Assaggio Ristorante in Seattle, WA is to be convinced that cooking and eating are acts of passion. In this cookbook, with his characteristic wit and charm, Mauro is sharing not only the best of his recipes but also his philosophy on food; simplicity, honesty, and most important, passion. From Mauro's famous Insalata di Francesca to his mouthwatering Ossobuco all Milanese, these recipes are designed to stir up passion in your own kitchen.
Please help us share Mauro's passion with the world, one cookbook at a time. Thank you for all your support!
First Edition Cookbook
And for those of you who own our first cookbook, we will be adding new recipes, taking away old recipes (so only you have), and updating information and pictures. It will be worth owning both!
What others think of the cookbook.
"This is a beautiful cookbook with some of my favorite Assaggio recipes. You can feel Mauro's passion on every page. Mauro is bigger than life and as I turn each page, I see him in front of me, wine glass in hand, sharing his passion for food." - Howard Shultz (Chairman, Starbucks Coffee Company)
"It's impossible not to love Mauro; his enormous heart, his welcoming restaurant, and most of all, his vibrant food. And somehow, it's all captured here in these pages. I can't wait to start cooking from this book." - Greg Atkinson (Culinary Consulting)
"There isn't anybody that can make you feel more welcomed and at home than Mauro Golmarvi. He taught me that if you love what you do, you never have to work another day in your life. Mauro lives this philosophy; his passion for food is only surpassed by his love for family and friends." - Lucio Dalla Gasperina (Co-founder, Tommy Bahama)
"Mauro is uniquely gifted, and after traveling the culinary world, nothing makes me feel more at home than an informally splendid meal at Assaggio, where I can always count on a hug from the chef. And like his food, his book is fulfilling." - John Sarich (Culinary Director, Chateau Ste. Michelle)
What we will do with the funds.
If we meet the goal, we will cover all the basic expenses for a production run of the cookbooks.
